Good

Just another racing game...

There's nothing that makes this racing game unique where it counts. You can race on different surfaces which is indeed a pretty new concept but it really doesn't add much in terms of driving strategy to the game.

On pavement? FLOOR IT! On dirt? FLOOR IT! On two wheels? FLOOR IT!

The graphics are what you would expect from a next gen racing game and nothing more. I actually found the whole blurring effect to be a kind of shortcut to putting in details in the terrain/trees near the track itself. You can even drive straight through a majority of the trees and bushes without even a hint of contact.

This game does have many different events in the career mode but you can end up doing the same track at different points in the career. The only upside to going through the career was unlocking the new types of races which would bring at least a little variety to the game.

The online mode is a joke and I can't see why it was even tacked on. You might as well of just had the online scoreboards which are there anyhow. All in all, if your a racing game fan, it's going to be a blast. If your not such a racing fanatic (like me) and you think "you play one racing game, you've played 'em all", this doesn't really prove that theory wrong.

Honestly, why haven't they come out with more games like this. Dirt 2 and 3 are no match for the original. This is still my favorite racing game ever..
